A squad of British soldiers is sent out on manoeuvres into the wilds of Scotland. They thought the worst they had to worry about was missing the biggest football match of the decade, but what should have been a routine military exercise turns into a nightmare for Sergeant Harry Wells (Sean Pertwee) and Riflemen Lawrence Cooper (Kevin McKidd), Joe Kirkley (Chris Robson), Terry Milburn (Leslie Simpson), Phil Witherspoon (Darren Morfitt) and Corporal Bruce Campbell (Thomas Lockyer).
Something's out there...and it's hungry. Very hungry. And hairy....very hairy.
Stumbling into the encampment of Captain Richard Ryan (Liam Cunningham), on a mysterious Top Secret mission for the Special Operations Division, the squad find him mortally injured and his crack unit torn to shreds.
Stunned by the blood-soaked aftermath and unable to get any sense from Ryan, the shocked men are led by local girl Megan (Emma Cleasby) to a deserted farmhouse deep in the forest for refuge.
Inside, the table is set for dinner and something meaty is bubbling on the stove, but no-one is home. Strange noises outside grow closer and closer - a strangely hairy family are coming home and they're hungry.
With no radio contact, no live ammunition and only each other to rely on, the soldiers must rely on brute force and cunning if they are to fight the werewolves battering down the doors and smashing through the windows.
Who will survive the terrifying threat? And what will be left of those that do?
